Ok so after my heater decided to stop working yesterday I went into diagbox for the second time in a few weeks and when it came to the vin bit I had to put it in manually rather than the software detecting it its self like it did the first time I used it.

How ever it now will not read anything at all just no dialogue next to everything.
I can here all the components clicking when it does a global scan but just get the no dialogue so unable source issue out.
Anyone else had this and know what the cause is?

Check that you entered the VIN correctly and not confused a letter "S" with a figure "5" or a "B" with an "8" or similar, that has happened to me in the past.

that's what i did first I even took a pic of vin on phone and zoomed in on each digit to confirm.

Try deleting the interface from device manager and let it reinstall in case it a corrupt driver. Also check firmware version with interface checker

No joy at all..refuses to connect to the car.
Will not auto detect and manually putting the vin in fails to.
I even checked and changed fuse for the ECU.

Think I am done with this car not being able to sort the simplest tasks with this car is starting to frustrate me.

Your issue is with the adapter not the car

As for your heater issue its most likely wiring under the dash so getting comms wont help in that respect some things dont need a computer to fix get under the dash glovebox side and find the blower give the wires a wiggle if the blower then comes on its dodgy wiring very common on peugeots.

I need the computer to reset particle fliter fluid counter also.
The one time I used it to try and reset the counter it would not let me.

Try a system restore to day before you connected to net if available
